It can sometimes seem overwhelming to figure out exactly what sort of supplies you should have for a Maltipoo puppy or dog. And even if you see a list, then comes the question of exactly which items are best. After all, there are countless beds, grooming tools, bathing supplies and more; just how do you weed out those which are worth obtaining?
Here, we'll go over a short list of needed supplies. Then, in an ongoing project, we will cover these in more detail, regarding why they are needed and how to choose the best ones.
To begin, this is a list of supplies that will be needed for any Maltipoo puppy or dog. While technically a dog can survive without some of these items, this is what is recommended for optimal health, safety, comfort and happiness.

Here, you'll see the sections available now that show details of why each supply is needed, how it can help your Maltipoo and recommendations on choosing the best in each category.
If there was one supply that was most often not given enough thought, it would be toys. It's not unusual for owners to grab a bunch of toys as often as they can, essentially creating a huge collection. However, it's also common for most of those toys to be ignored.
Yet, if you think of toys as being tools and take the time to select just a few really good ones, this can make huge improvements in a puppy or dog's general well-being. From stopping destructive chewing... to helping a pup stay entertained... to being a huge aide in wiping out separation anxiety, the right toys can make a world of difference.
Every product you do or do not put on the coat has a huge affect in both the health of the skin and coat, and a Maltipoo's appearance. Inferior products can lead to skin issues (dryness, itchiness, peeling). And without proper coat protection, the coat can develop terrible texture due to dryness, frizz, and/or split ends.
It's important to understand what each product: shampoo, conditioner, and a leave-in spritz, is meant to do, and how to choose the right ones for your Maltipoo.
